Tim Holtz - August 12 Tags of 2014… also in the form of an ATB!

Hello! I'm doing pretty well keeping up with the 12 tags this year. Amazing, lol! I decided to convert Tim's tag techniques to the form of an Artist Trading Block to mix things up a bit. This was lots of fun to make. I picked some of my favorite stamps and Idea-ology bits and went to town. You can see Tim's example and directions on his blog. Here is my ATB from all angles:

I'm also going to enter this into the Mixed Media Monthly August Challenge, Stencils with Modeling Paste. I used Ranger's new Texture Paste with the Latticework stencil to add some great texture to the panels on my ATB. Love that stuff and how it takes ink, paint and stains!

I hope that you have been inspired to get creative too! Most of the supplies I used for this can be found at Inspiration Emporium. Follow the links below and use my code JUICE to save 10% if you go shopping. I will also point out that US shipping is always $5 and international shipping is just $10!
